What Is Dragon fruit?
Delicious dragon fruit salad with tons of berries and fresh fruit flavor – served in a dragon fruit bowl, perfect for parties! This fruit salad is perfect alongside eggs benedict, mimosas, blueberry waffles, and more – or even with BBQ favorites at a party!
We love serving these for breakfast, for parties, for lunch, and more – it is great as a dessert, delicious as an appetizer, or perfect as a pretty snack.
Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is a cactus fruit native to the Americas in tropical locations. Dragon fruit is dramatic looking – with a bright red outside with green “scales” (like a dragon) and white fruit with black seeds inside.
Dragon fruit tastes a bit like a cross between a kiwi and a pear – it is sweet and delicious with berries and fruits!
How To Make Dragonfruit Salad
To cut a dragon fruit, use a sharp long knife and cut the fruit in half.
Using a butter knife or spoon, slide along the fruit to remove it from the peel.
Fruit can then be diced, or cut with a fun cookie cutter to make a shape like I did for pictures here.
Dragon fruit is great with all sorts of fruits – blueberries, kiwis, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, pears, apples, passionfruit, papaya, mango, and grapes!

This recipe can be kept for a day in an airtight container in the refrigerator – but fruit should be eaten as close to cutting and rinsing as possible as it starts to wither quickly.
You can swap out different berries, add apples, add grapes, bananas, mangoes, or any fruit you love the flavor of!
Use whichever color dragonfruit you can find available that is fresh and ready to serve.
